Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"In this session, we covered various problems from the student's final exam review. The problems involved combinations, binomial distribution, normal approximation to the binomial distribution, z test on a population mean, confidence interval around a population mean using t, z test on a proportion, and confidence interval around a population proportion. We will continue with the review in a session tomorrow."
"The student and I worked on practice problems to get her ready for her exam. These covered hypothesis testing for sample means and sample proportions, as well as linear regression and correlation. We were able to get through quite a few together, and I left her with some more practice for her to work on before her exam tomorrow. I also gave her tips on getting her "note sheet" ready."
"The student completed the first tutoring session aimed at improving her understanding of statistics. During the session, I helped her prepare for her upcoming statistics final. Specifically, we worked through a number of test prep questions that her instructor had provided. She was initially required to answer each item independently. If she provided an inaccurate response, I pointed out her error(s) and asked her questions aimed at guiding her toward the correct solution. I also explained any statistical terms and/or concepts she was unfamiliar with, when necessary. While completing the review questions, we discussed a variety of topics (e.g., frequency distributions, central tendency, variance, z-scores, standard deviation, probability, hypothesis testing, t-test, ANOVA, chi-squared tests, correlation, and regression)."
"The student has her final exam coming up next week, so most of our time today was focused on review. I went over frequency distributions and how they are used to check for normality. We then went over her most recent test and corrected mistakes. We are planning on meeting again this weekend."
"The student is studying the law of sines and the law of cosines and has his book and his study guide for his test. He is doing quite well but had to be reminded that he should remember to take the square root when using the law of cosines and that the law of cosines is used when you have two sides. He has a positive attitude and has a practice packet that the teacher is using, so he already has some challenge problems to work on. He was given access to all trig functions and formulas before we ended the session."
"The student learned about t-tests, and we did some example problems. We started to review linear regression and covariance. For our next session, she wants to go back to chapters that she covered a few weeks ago, and start to prepare for her final exam."
